Brackley-based automotive manufacturer pledges support of disabled racing team

September 2017

Team Brit Drivers with cars Brackley-based automotive business, ATEC Autotechnic has renewed its support of motorsport’s most inspirational racing team. ATEC, which was originally established in Germany, is a leading manufacturer of fluid transfer systems for the automotive industry, supplying parts to clients all over the world.

For the 4th year running, the company has pledged its support of Team BRIT – a racing team aiming to be the first ever all-disabled team to race in Le Mans.

In 2014, UK Manager Jeanne Robinson was introduced to the charity KartForce, which helps injured military veterans access motorsport and soon offered ATEC’s help. Charity founder, Dave Player, then created Team BRIT, providing KartForce drivers with the opportunity to move on to competitive racing.

Originally consisting of injured veterans only, the team has now opened its doors to civilian disabled drivers and has taken on its first civilian rookies.

Currently competing in the UK Fun Cup championship, the team is looking to make history by competing in Le Mans by 2020. It has developed the world’s most advanced hand controls which allow disabled drivers to compete on equal terms with able-bodied drivers.

ATEC Autotechnic will continue its support of KartForce and Team BRIT in 2018, joining a range of sponsors that help keep the team on the race track. Jeanne Robinson said, “We at ATEC get an enormous sense of pride in being able to support Team BRIT.  From the very early days, watching how they have evolved and seeing the number of ex-service personnel they have helped has been incredible.”

Team Founder Dave player said, “We are incredibly grateful to ATEC for the continued support they have offered the team. We are looking to normalise disability and to inspire people with physical and psychological disabilities to try things they never thought possible. “We’ve come such a long way in our efforts to do this and have a fantastic year ahead. This is only possible through the support of companies such as ATEC who believe in what we’re doing and will help us on our way to making sporting history and creating opportunities for many disabled people.”

The Strakka DOME LMP2 resumes testing on all-ATEC Performance Fluid Transfer Systems.

January 2015

The Strakka DOME LMP2 coupe has resumed development testing after its entry in the World Endurance Championship finale at Interlagos in October was cancelled.

Strakka Racing has completed three days of testing at Paul Ricard with the Nissan-powered S103, completing more than 500km on Wednesday (10th December) before moving onto longer runs on the Thursday.

Brackley based ATEC Autotechnic were again called on to supply and fit the S103 with a complete set of fluid transfer systems, including engine, gearbox, fuel, brake, clutch, water and air jack systems.

ATEC’s Rainer Hatzenbühler said, “We were very pleased to have the opportunity to again work with Strakka. P2 cars are designed to a cost cap. So ATEC uses this restriction to run standard stocked parts, this project allows us to showcase the full range of high performance race products in the ATEC stable.”

While ATEC support a number of teams within the P2 series from their Brackley office, their Headquarters and factory in Germany also support many of the P1 competitors.

“Sportscar racing demands absolute reliability, requiring products to be durable for extended periods of use,” says Karl Patman, Strakka’s sportscar team manager. “Thanks to its experience and wide product range, ATEC is able to provide high quality parts, that deliver the required performance within the tight restrictions of the cost-capped LMP2 category. We are delighted with the reliability and technical support and look forward to continuing the relationship into 2015.”
